BBC and NBC announced the Top Gear lineup for the stateside earlier this week. Playing Jeremy Clarkson’s roll in the U.S. will be comedian Adam Corolla; HGTV’s Eric Stromer will be playing James May; Richard Hammonds roll will be handled by Tanner Foust. Of course, that is our take on the lineup and that’s just how it’s going to be.
Who is Tanner Foust and how good is he? Foust is a famous champion in rally, drift and ice racing. He’s seen major success in Drift and Rally in the last few seasons. Foust holds the 2007 X Games Rally Gold Medal and is 2007’s Formula Drift Pro Drift champion.
